Halloween town


We love this Holiday! You get to be silly and eat candy. What's not to love.

We have one of these little gnome's this year;

A sweet little girl scout;

Mr. Harry Potter;

And a scary vampire who left with friends so I haven't gotten to take her picture yet.

We have been carving pumpkins;

And making yummy treats, these are witches fingers;

And this year the kids woke up to some sort of spider web outside there door that they had to break through to come to breakfast.

We're all excited for tonight.

KU cheer camp


Scott surprised Ellie and signed her up for KU's cheer camp again this year. She got to be in it with a bunch of her friends this year and she loved it. Because all of the "Real Cheerleaders" know her dad she went early and got to hang out with them while they did their cheers. Every time I looked over she was on one of the girls shoulders or holding one of their hands. Yea, she is just a little proud that she got to be one of them till her part came up at half time.

Here is a short video of part of their dance. She gets a little sidetracked watching one of the big cheerleaders doing the routine. She had so much fun and cheered her little heart out for those KU football players.

baby boy~17months

Oh, we love this boy so much. He is so fun and as darling as they come.
This month he has been repeating everything he hears. His vocab has more than doubled in the last few months. Everywhere we go people comment on how blonde this boy is and ask me where he got his curly hair. I don't know how I will ever cut those curls.
He loves to swim, climb up onto tables, kiss babies, eat dog food and put his finger in everyones belly buttons. He loves his big brother and sisters and will climb up into their laps, say "Hi" and then smother them with puckered lipped kisses.
He is very good about saying "Thank you" and he sings along to the song Look Down from Les may be the cutest thing ever. And believe it or not he can whistle. My guess is that it is because his big brother whistles NON STOP and is darn good.
If I'm not keeping him out of the toilet, or the trash then I am chasing him around the house trying to get him to spit some object out of his mouth. He keeps us on our toes and I just know I am going to miss every exhausting minute of this stage so badly when my house is quiet and empty of kids all day.

Witches Day Out

Macie's October Girlie Girl party was a few weeks ago and the theme was Witches Day Out. It was so cute to see all the girls all dressed up like witches.
I am posting pictures that I stole off of my friends blog cause I didn't take any.
Boy, did she have fun.

We love Halloween season.
